So school is done, you dont have homework and you can finally focus your studies to what matters most... ultimate. Below is what id like to call the summer reading list for 2007, a collection of blogs, books, and other websites that should more than satiate that appetite for ultimate knowledge and fill those extra hours of free time.
- Parinella - author of UTT reflections on strategy and history of game
- George Cooke - thoughts on coaching college and playing club
- Process of Illumination - snarky and often humorous comments on college and club ultimate from former hodags
- PlayUltimate - high school ultimate news and commentary
- The Pulse - college and club ultimate commentary by contributor Ryan
- Great moments are born from great opportunities - ultimate reflections by contributor Jay
- The Weather is Better up Here - well-researched thoughts from a retired college player and current club player
- You didnt hear it from me but... - rarely updated, but great source for some stories from ultimate tournaments of yesteryear from one of the best players in the game (this one is good)
- Ultimate Techniques and Tactics by Jim Parinella, the bible for ultimate players
- Ultimate: the first four decades - ultimate history book
Good sites in general
- PlayUltimate.us - the MOST up to date, user-driven ultimate news site on the internet. YOU can submit anything ultimate-related you want here (and please do!)
- Ultimate Handbook - great place for the absolute basics of ultimate strategy, after you get through all of this buy Ultimate Techniques and Tactics
Feel free to add to this list, post anything you think is an absolute must read during the "off-season"
